Connect Columbia, the City's comprehensive plan, was adopted in January of 2018. The plan serves as a blueprint for growth in Columbia and its urban growth boundary. Connect Columbia is composed of three elements: the Future Land Use Plan, the Parks & Greenways Plan, and the Transportation Plan. An additional framework plan establishes priorities and directs implementation. The collection of maps and policies describes how land may be used and provides for concurrent public services and infrastructure.
The Planning Commission, through Planning & Zoning staff, are currently preparing a major update of the plan. An advisory Steering Committee is providing guidance and direction throughout the process. Public meetings will occur during the Spring of 2023 with a target date of adoption by Planning Commission in August 2023. Take a look at the "Get Involved" page to learn how you can participate.
